Boston's Epic Bad Winter Takes Jokes At Political Breakfast

Boston's snowy winter took most of the hits at the annual St. Patrick's Day political breakfast.

An opening video showed host state Sen. Linda Dorcena Forrey and Gov. Charlie Baker waiting for a late bus, driven by MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott. A video spoof from Mayor Marty Walsh ended with the Boston snow Yeti taking over.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft brought the ultimate parking space saver, the Super Bowl trophy.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren joked the winter has been so bad that Mitt Romney "left his money here and he went to the Cayman Islands."

Former Gov. Deval Patrick and members of his administration also took some pokes over their jobs with the private group promoting the city's 2024 Olympics bid.

And a call-in guest, Vice President Joe Biden, was teased for being long-winded.
